Here's an idea, ship all the men over to the Americas and empty Australia. Women and children get Europe Africa and Asia. Australia will be used for purposes of 'the continuation of the human race' and 5 minutes later after the deed ( Smile ) the men get shipped back to the Americas again. Boys get sent to America once puberty is reached.

That should solve the problem.


Oh, hold on, what about common sense?

Seen this over on AP forums as well - I still can't quite belive the pedo madness that has spread over the nation Sad Especailly as most incidents and studies show that its often not the creepy guy with the DSLR or camera but infact closer family and friends who are more likley to perform such actions. Even the high profile media cases have shown this to be true often as not.

If you just go to Sky News, you can easily guess which news it is, Mike.

Can't get much closer family than the dad. Maybe Mr Security has been reading the same studies and decided to stop the depravity that was happening so blatantly in full public view.

Makes me sad where this country is going sometimes.

I think the cops should have done the security company for displaying their a*$ses in a public place! Wink

So what would've happened when the ride stopped and he picked his son up in his arms and walked out of the Shopping Centre then???

that would be a sexual assault.

No Cole, kidnapping maybe, but not sexual assault.

I suppose what I was getting at is that had his wife not been there, then the only way to resolve this in the Security Guards eyes would've been to walk away and leave his son there crying.

Sometimes things like this annoy the hell out of me. Today I just feel a general sadness for the pathetic state of what passes for common sense in this country.

Apart from anything else, did the security guard or police not stop to wonder where the boy's parents were if they weren't the photographer?

The only problem with getting worked up about this is that you then go and read the BBC website and find this abomination! Sad Dear, oh dear.
